Well, I was trying to do this last 3-4 hours and I found lot of questions about it but no answer. Finaly I got it working so I just want to share it with other people who were searching for this.
It is very simple. Go to your ACP--> Style Manager --> Edit Style --> User Control Panel Templates --> userfield_wrapper

At the top of it add:


Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.
---------------



Change "FIELD NUMBER" to the field number of the profile field you want to restrict.
Change "USER GROUP IDs" to the ID(s) of the User group(s) you want to have permission to use this field.

At the bottom of everything add:



Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.

That is all....enjoy :)

This hides it from the User CP, but not from the About Me tab, so they can still edit them :/

Great mod! Is there a way to make this work for various profile fields to various usergroups?

ie:

Hide field 9 from usergroups a,b and c, and then hide field 8 from d,e,f?
